KANSAS CITY, Kan.- Palm Beach Atlantic sophomore Kenny Hogg has had a pretty good couple of months. Not only was he named to the NSCAA All-American first-team for his accomplishments within the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA), but he was also recognized within the NCAA Division II ranks as a member of the NSCAA All-South Region second-team. The NCAA honor is just the second in the history of the PBA men’s soccer program.
A native of Irvine, Scotland, Hogg finished the 2011 season, his first at PBA, with some impressive statistics and accolades.
Hogg’s total of 23 goals in 22 matches not only helped lead his squad to a 13-8-1 record for the season but also left him atop the national NCAA Division II leader board in goals and points scored. Hogg finished as the nation’s top goal scorer while concluding his season with 48 total points (23 goals, 2 assists) which was also the nation’s best.
Anderson University senior Lasse Sohrweide finished second to Hogg with 47 points while Barry University senior Mark Anderson was third with 45 points.
Hogg averaged 1.10 goals per game to finish second in the nation in that category while his 2.29 points per game placed him fifth nationally with Florida Southern College’s Zach Hofstetter leading the country with 1.13 goals and 2.93 points per game.
For his accomplishments, Hogg was named to the NSCAA/NCCAA All-American first-team while also being named this week to the NSCAA All-South Region second-team as a forward.
The honor within the NCAA is just the second for a Sailfish men’s soccer player as Hogg joins former Sailfish standout and current assistant coach, Cheyne Roberts, as the only players to be honored by the NCAA in PBA’s short tenure as a Division II member. Roberts was named to the NSCAA All-South Region first-team following his senior season in 2009.
